|Some never grow up|
There are babies, children and then most of us then become adults.
But it doesn’t end there, for if we live long enough our minds eventually become less focussed. Some quicker than others.

Ninth Ward, bar
Jonathan and Alice had bankrolled our transport, Edward hosted the event at his classy bar, Ninth Ward, close to St Paul’s, and Danila provided airb&b service at no charge.

friends at the Ninth Ward, EC1
We met some beautiful new faces: from Emma, who took a prize for her love of animals (including Edward) to Athena Grace, who like all babies is innocence personified. Interestingly according to Clemmie, Athena was born a toddler, so perhaps she’ll have less difficulty in moving on quickly!
Emma and Athena are new to my photo album and I publish snaps of their breathtaking beauty.

Over last weekend I also re-bonded with many old friends, from north Londoners Willy and Alex to the Addison boys, to talented niece Livvy, and from John and Kathy (who I first met 35 years ago) to Danila (who I’ve known, married and had children with over the past 45 years).

I was asked at the event by son Edward to make sure I met his Grandmother soon, as “we are all getting older”.
Indeed, none of us are getting younger.
In view of this how unfortunate that Lynne and I weren’t invited to a dinner of Jonathan and Alice’s close relatives, including Edward’s grandmother on the night we arrived in London.

We have another opportunity to move on at Christmas.
Let’s all try and mature by then!
Peter Pan was a fairy story, and in the real world we must all, even the amazing Athena Grace, grow up.
